Back from break, we get a montage of James being an asshole, because that's something that Probst thinks we care about. Probst says James was both a surprise and a disappointment, as he got injured again and had to leave early but was surprisingly an asshole to everyone. Probst is concerned about James and his attitude this time around, saying he didn't appear to be having fun. James says he was having fun but it "didn't seem that way." He apologizes to his mother and says the cameras caught him at his worst moments. Probst says he thinks there's more to it than that, as he thought from day one that James was in a "bad mood." James won't tell him whatever it is that he wants to hear, just saying he's disappointed in his knee but okay with how he came off this season. Amanda decides to step in and say something in James's defense, but Probst cuts her off to talk to Rupert about his broken toe. Rupert immediately informs us that he actually broke two bones in one toe and one in another. Whatever, Rupert. I still don't think you're hardcore. Li'l Russell, meanwhile, appears to be trying to tell us (with his mic turned down, I believe) that it was just one toe. Rupert says he was afraid that the injury would get him voted out early on. I was hopeful of that. Sigh. Probst asks how he feels about the Heroes vs. Villains theme, and Rupert says he was one of the Heroes after stealing, lying and manipulating in his previous seasons, so that tells you what this game is like. Then he says he likes being called a "Hero," even though he kind of just said it didn't mean anything.
